Info

Eight years into his role as artistic director of the Czech Philharmonic, Karel Ancerl spent some sessions recording with the Vienna Symphony which was at the time still presided over by von Karajan. The repertoire was Dvorák and Tchaikovsky, with the addition of Vltava (only) from Má Vlast and the sessions stretched from March 1958 to February 1959.
